Triptych – Yellow (Edited: Oops!)

Jun 30, 2018 | Posted by in Everyday Jade, Sinful Sunday | 14

The first Sunday of the month is always a theme for Sinful Sunday. I usually miss it (go figure, right?) and I would have this month too, except that I happened to read Rebel’s oh-so-helpful “meme guide.” I love that thing, I truly do. (It’s at the end of her #SOSS posts.) Anyway. I had a couple things in mind, but then today I had some time to myself to download the pics from our Vegas trip that our friend Allan had taken. This guy is an amazing photographer. After seeing a few of them, I decided I had to do a triptych of some of them. These are in his “yellow” series. At Red Rocks Canyon Park, at sunset.   Edit: Ah hell, I can’t even get this right! It’s “Diptych” not “Triptych”! Oh well…here ya go, because I don’t have the time or patience to do it allRead more …

June 30 – Every. Damn. Day.

Jun 30, 2018 | Posted by in Every Damn Day in June, Everyday Jade | 2

Is it really the LAST day of June? The last day of this writing challenge? Like after a beloved book ends, I am feeling a little…bereft. How will I keep myself writing? I really thought it would be harder than it was. I thought I’d have to fight myself to write every day. And yes, there were days when I simply had nothing to say, or I was too tired to “write” or my brain was in empty mode when I got home or the idea of getting on the computer was just too hard to contemplate. But still, except for a very few exceptions, I did it. I sat here and wrote something. And, I wrote at work, in between all the things, instead of taking a 10 minute smoke break (okay there isn’t anybody (that I know of) that takes smoke breaks in my office, including me) butRead more …

June 29 – Boobday!

Jun 29, 2018 | Posted by in Boob Day, Every Damn Day in June | 9

Hyacinth over on A Dissolute Life Means hosts, besides the Every Damn Day challenge, a weekly post celebrating all things boobs, Friday is Boobday. I don’t share too often, but I can’t resist this week. I have cleavage! (I think every time I share on Boobday I say the same thing, lol.) The point is to celebrate our female form, not criticize or feel embarrassed about size, shape, color, if they sag or if they jut out, if they are soft or firm or lopsided, etc! So, here’s mine, looking all curvy and tan (which they aren’t supposed to be, but it’s hard to do anything outside without my chest coloring.) And I know, I know, pretty demure, for me!

June 28 – An Accounting

It’s not the end of the “Every Damn Day in June” challenge, but it is the end of my food challenge, and I am happy to say that I did pretty well. I wasn’t 100% by any means, but I was about 85 – 90%. It did make me stop and think about every food choice I made, and many, many times I made better decisions. Or, in certain specific cases, I chose to eat something that was on my list, knowing there would be consequences, but making that choice consciously, not just putting food in my mouth because it tastes good, and maybe trading off somewhere else. We’ll see how/if this new awareness  continues. I do know that without the aegis not to eat it, nightly ice cream will be a hard thing to resist. One thing that was really hard for me was no fast food. I don’t likeRead more …

June 27 – Writing Under Duress

I am beset with technical challenges. Tonight, while I tried to charge my external keyboard that I use with my tablet, I decided to use my laptop instead. Have you ever been on your  computer while someone else, a technician maybe, took control for a few minutes? Yeah, it was like that. All of sudden my mouse is moving everywhere, windows are opening and closing in my browser, my mouse is completely out of my control. It was like a poltergeist in my computer. I have no idea what was going on. I typed out a panicky text to V (OMG what if Russians are using my computer to spread pro-Trump propaganda?? [I really can’t think of anything worse than that]) but he’s already abed, so I turned it off and am hoping it was just some weird fluke. Meanwhile, now I’m here laying in bed typing with an on-screenRead more …

June 26 – #amwriting

Jun 26, 2018 | Posted by in #SOSS, Every Damn Day in June, Uncategorized | 3

I had it all planned out, my evening, my writing. I had a topic in mind, I had time to myself to do it, I was even going to have myself a “writing date” somewhere to be determined, but certainly not at home. Do some pre-writing at work, as I’ve been able to do the past few days; leave work at 4:45; get to my hair appointment at 5:15; find a nice little wine bar at 7:30; write sexy smutty dirty stuff till 9:30,;be home by 10 and in bed doing a little reading by 11. You know what they say bout the best laid plans. First my coworker didn’t make it in again today, so rather than poking around in my head and playing with words a little bit throughout the day, I was scrambling to get both our jobs done. Then, at about noon, I realized that –Read more …

June 25 – Basement

Jun 25, 2018 | Posted by in Every Damn Day in June, Kinky Stuff | 3

The first scene I ever did with W was in his grungy, city basement. It was my first taste of truly “dirty” play…like, on the floor, in sawdust and dirt and grime, among power tools and hardware, open beams, dark, spooky corners, chains and wood and a drain in the floor. He tied me to support beams that had been there since the house was built in 1903, shoved me in the old coal storage room, closed me in a makeshift “cage” that had a rusty lock and (I am sure) a spider or two. He pissed on me down there and hosed me off after, he fucked me with various implements and on my hands and knees with his cock, he tied me in a million different predicaments. I always wore heels, even there, and actually had heels we designated as “basement” shoes, because in the basement there wasRead more …

June 23 – #SOSS – The First

Jun 23, 2018 | Posted by in #SOSS, Every Damn Day in June, Memes & Prompts | 4

I am so thoroughly enjoying writing again. Writing for writing’s sake. But I don’t kid myself for a minute that if I didn’t “have” to, that I would be writing every day. (Thank you, Hyacinth, for the kick in the ass!!) I do need a push to get started. Like a kid on a bicycle, right? Or maybe a better metaphor would be a stalled car that you need to push and pop the clutch on to get it going. Yeah, much more evocative image, and hell, truer to life. I’m closer to an old beater car than I am to an innocent child. The other thing that has happened because I am writing more is that I am also reading others’ writings more. I have a few tried-and-true blogs I read, that come to me in my inbox, people I know or feel like I know because I haveRead more …

June 21 – A Learning Curve

Jun 21, 2018 | Posted by in Every Damn Day in June, Everyday Jade, Uncategorized | 0

I suck at conflict resolution. I didn’t realize that until recently, though. I thought, because there was so little conflict in my marriage, in my relationship with Adam, and in my relationship with W, that that meant I was super good at resolving things in a healthy manner. Go me! And I believe I also thought the inverse of that: because there have been conflicts in my relationship with V, there’s something wrong with it. But that’s not exactly true. The truth is that (I have only recently come to realize) there were few conflicts in my previous long-term relationships because my way of “resolving” a potential conflict was to either, a) run away from it, or b) give in so there was no conflict. I knew I was conflict-averse. That’s a fact of being me: I go to any lengths to avoid conflicts. The realization was that avoiding allRead more …
